Poster Design Suggestions (from AAAS*)

  • Allow ample time to prepare your poster. Use a crisp, clean and strong title. Do not tell the entire research history. Present only enough data to support your conclusions and show the originality of the work. The best posters display a succinct statement of major conclusions at the beginning, followed by supporting text in later segments and a brief summary at the end.
  • The title lettering should be about 2” to 3” (5 cm to 7.5 cm) with subheadings.” to 1’ high (1.25 cm to 2.5 cm).
  • All lettering should be legible from about 5 feet (1.5 m) away. Text material should be approximately 24 points (1/4”/.625 cm).
  • Convert tabular material to a graphic display, if possible.
  • Use color to add emphasis and clarity.
  • Make illustrations simple and bold. Enlarge photos to show pertinent details clearly.
  • Logos for NM-INBRE and NCGR are available on the program website:
  • Displayed materials should be self-explanatory, freeing you for discussion.
